Acute Health Effects (Short-Term): CAN BE A MECHANICAL IRRITANT TO SKIN, EYES, & UPPER RESPIRATORY SYSTEM DURING FABRICATION

Chronic Health Effects (Long-Term): STUDIES SHOW NO STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT INCREASED RISK OF RESPIRATORY DISEASES

Inhalation: Dust may cause irritation to the upper respiratory tract (nose and throat). NO SIGNIFICANT SIGNS OR SYMPTOMS INDICATIVE OF ANY ADVERSE HEALTH ARE EXPECTED TO OCCUR AS A RESULT OF INHALATION EXPOSURE.

Eye Contact: MAY CAUSE MINOR EYE IRRITATION FROM DUST ORIGINATING FROM FABRICATION.

Skin Absorption: NO SIGNIFICANT SIGNS OR SYMPTOMS INDICATIVE OF ANY ADVERSE HEALTH HAZARD ARE EXPECTED TO OCCUR AS A RESULT OF SKIN ABSORPTION.

Skin Irritation:  MAY PRODUCE SLIGHT SKIN IRRITATION.

Ingestion:  NO SIGNIFICANT SIGNS OR SYMPTOMS INDICATIVE OF ANY ADVERSE HEALTH HAZARD ARE EXPECTED TO OCCUR AS A RESULT OF INGESTION.  PRODUCT IS NOT FOR CONSUMPTION.

Summary Chronic Hazards and Special Health Effects:  THE MAJOR COMPONENTS OF THIS PRODUCT HAVE NOT BEEN IDENTIFIED AS SIGNIFICANT HAZARDS IN LONGTERM STUDIES.

Hazardous Decomposition Products (Fire): LIKE WOOD AND OTHER ORGANIC MATERIALS CAN RELEASE TOXIC SMOKE IF IGNITED.

NO ADDITIONAL MEDICAL INFORMATION FOUND.

SECTION 4: FIRST AID MEASURES

Inhalation: REMOVE TO FRESH AIR.

Eye Contact: FLUSH WITH WATER FOR 15-20 MINUTES OR UNTIL IRRITATION CEASES.

Skin Contact: WASH WITH SOAP AND WATER.

Ingestion: IF SWALLOWED, DILUTE WITH WATER. DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING.

Emergency Medical Treatment Procedures: PERSONS WHO DEVELOP SYMPTOMS OF ALLERGY, IRRITATION, RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS, OR PUFFINESS AROUND THE EYES SHOULD BE EXAMINED BY A PHYSICIAN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

SECTION 5: FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

Flash Point (Method): UNKNOWN

Auto-ignition Temperature: Greater than 450°C, per ASTM D1929

Flammable Limits (% Vol. in Air)

At Normal Atmospheric Temperature and Pressure: Lower: N/A Upper: N/A

Fire and Explosion Hazards: POLYISOCYANURATE FOAM WILL BURN IF EXPOSED TO FLAME OF SUFFICIENT HEAT AND INTENSITY. LIKE OTHER ORGANIC MATERIALS, CAN RELEASE TOXIC SMOKE IF IGNITED.

Extinguishing Media: DRY CHEMICAL, CO2, WATER SPRAY, WATER FOG, FOAM, WATER

Special Firefighting Procedures: SELF-CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS, dense smoke is emitted when polyisocyanurate foam is burned in an oxygen starved environment.

Unusual Fire Hazards: Cutting, grinding and sawing can cause the formation of dust. To reduce the potential of dust explosions, do not permit dust to accumulate, provide adequate ventilation and practice good housekeeping procedures.

The compaction of polyisocyanurate foam for disposal can entrap pentane in pockets of the compressed foam or at the bottom of the compactor. Appropriate engineering of the compactor is recommended to keep pentane levels below the LFL levels and to remove potential ignition sources caused from metal to metal contact in the compactor.

SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Precautions If Material is Spilled or Released: NOT APPLICABLE

Waste Disposal Methods:    DISPOSAL SHOULD BE IN ACCORDANCE WITH FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL REGULATIONS.

SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE

PROTECT FROM MOISTURE.WHEN STORED OUTDOORS, STACK ABOVE GROUND LEVEL AND COVER WITH TARPAULINS OR OTHER SUITABLE COVERING. 

THIS MATERIAL IS COMBUSTIBLE AND SHOULD NOT BE EXPOSED TO FLAME OR OTHER IGNITION SOURCES, REFER TO FIRE AND EXPLOSION RISKS (SECTION 5 IN THIS SDS).

THE ACGIH LISTING FOR HYDROCARBON BLOWING AGENTS HAVE A TIME WEIGHTED AVERAGE OF 600 PPM.

NO SMOKING, OPEN FLAMES, OR SOURCES OF IGNITION IN HANDLING AND STORAGE AREA.

FABRICATION METHODS WHICH INVOLVE CUTTING INTO THIS PRODUCT MAY RELEASE THE BLOWING AGENT REMAINING IN THE DAMAGED CELLS. PROVIDE ADEQUATE VENTILATION TO ASSURE LOCALIZED CONCENTRATIONS OF THE BLOWING AGENT ARE MAINTAINED BELOW THE LFL (LOWER FLAMMABILITY LIMIT)

Shipping Regulations: NOT CLASSIFIED AS A HAZARDOUS MATERIAL BY DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION DEFINITIONS AND HENCE IT IS NOT REGULATED.

Materials to Avoid: DIRECT APPLICATION OF HOT ASPHALT.

Conditions to Avoid:  AVOID TEMPERATURES ABOVE 150°C (302°F) DURING STORAGE. EXPOSURE TO ELEVATED TEMPERATURES CAN CAUSE PRODUCT TO DECOMPOSE. AVOID DIRECT SUNLIGHT. AVOID OPEN FLAME OR OTHER IGNITION SOURCES AND PROLONGED EXPOSURE TO THE ELEMENTS.
